Toyota’s Car Commercial for Cat People

Toyota’s Car Commercial for Cat People

BY Liza Colby |

While I’m typically NOT a cat lover (woof, woof – dogs all the way!), there’s a new ad out for the 2013 Toyota Corolla with a featured feline from which I cannot look away! It’s a slow ad, with sweet, mellow French music and I just love it.

The cat’s expressions… so serious, SO into the car. The “product” shots are squeezed in between cat-focused frames and the art direction is compelling in that way. Definitely different than other Toyota ads I’ve seen. Awesome job, Toyota. Masochistic kitty, I kind of adore you.

    Hahaha I love this commercial so much. So funny. We’ve actually had people come into the store talking about this. That was before I saw it, now I know what they’re talking about and I love it!
